39. Consignment ~ DS ~ 1/15 ~ Case V-42. No question that it is the best that I have ever seen! The blade retains 100% of the original bluing.

The original long scabbard is 99% with the only staining being where the knife set in it. It would be nearly impossible to upgrade this knife and sheath. I saw one that sold on Ebay for $9750, and (in my opinion) it was not as nice…
40. Consignment ~ DS ~ 10/23 ~ Richtig WWII Fighting Knife. Bright blade is 6 1/8” long. Blade shows careful sharpening. Only the smallest amount of corrosion at the ricasso. Brass guard & pommel. Proper “2” ALFRED CORNISH, OMAHA, NEB. Scabbard. All aspects are intact. This is a VERY nice example of the Richtig WWII fighter, in excellent condition overall.

43. Consignment ~ DF ~ WWII Style Snap Blade M-2 Parachute Knife. 3 ¾” blade has careful sharpening, but no grinding or corrosion. Knife operates perfectly. Two grooves milled into forward part of the scales and liner are believed to be made for lashing knife to a pole or pike. Pick-bone plastic scales are tight with no chips or cracks. Blade is unmarked. NOTE: NO PAYPAL ON THIS ITEM. $245
44. Consignment ~ DF ~ WWII Style “UDT” Knife without Fuller. Similar to KA-BAR MKII on Page 89 of Cole’s III. I haven’t seen many of these, but all have been bright blades and pommels (not plated). USN MKII plastic scabbard has had the webbing replaced with a leather belt loop. No retaining strap but knife fits very tight into sheath. 6 7/8” blade has been cleaned. Light corrosion over most of the surface. Blade has a very slight bend.
45. Consignment ~ DF ~ Camillus Cutlery Snap Blade Parachute Knife. Full blade appears unsharpened. Hook blade is as new. Knife operates properly but it does not lock open solidly. Strong spring. No cracks or breaks in scales. NOTE: NO PAYPAL ON THIS ITEM. $70

48. Consignment ~DF~ 6/5 ~ Vietnam Era U.S. M-1917 Trench Gun Bayonet. Gen-Cut Mfg. Absolutely MINT condition with proper 1917 scabbard—also mint. I have never seen a better one!
49. Consignment ~ DF ~ 1/1 ~ WWII Era USAAF Pilot’s Knife by Camillus Cutlery. Full Blade has a small nick on the cutting edge. Careful sharpening. Solid handle, no cracks or dings. Could be a replacement sheath.
50. Consignment ~ DC ~ Very nice example of a Frank Richtig WWII Fighter. 7” blade is in near perfect condition, as is the guard, handle and pommel. Scabbard appears to me to be a period replacement, made of tooled harness leather. A “V” for victory is also tooled on the front. Snap strap is intact. This is a very nice example of a classic WWII knife. $2250
51. Consignment ~ DC ~ 11/27 ~ This is the exact knife that was illustrated in Cole’s III, First Edition. Later Cole’s Book III printings replaced this knife with a picture of Mr. Cole and one of his knives. This knife was provided to Mr. Cole by long time collector, and friend to Mt. Cole, Ernie Modlin. (One of the good guys.) Heavy 8 1/8” double edge blade. Heavy steel guard has a leather backing. Handle is leather washers, held on with a threaded nut. Heavy harness leather scabbard. Letter from Frank Trzaska included with the knife.
52. Consignment ~ DC ~ 10/30 ~ WWII USMC Raider Stiletto, Camillus Mfg. This knife retains the factory needle tip on the full, unsharpened 7 ¼” blade. (I haven’t seen that very often over the years.) The scroll USMC and the makers information are all there. The blade has a lot of very tiny pitts on both sides. They are very tiny and most look like spotting rather than pitts. The handle and guard are in about 99% condition with only a very small amount of corrosion where the guard contacts the sheath. I see zero ion leaching on the handle or guard (unbelievable, but true!) The original sheath is solid. Snap strap is missing the male snap. 3/8” cut at the throat. Belt hanger is intact. EUGENE MORRISON KNIGHT USMCR, WWII DOG TAGS ARE ATTACHED. Also, included are some personal newspaper clippings, patches, and other paper memorabilia belonging to Mr. Knight—Very cool to have…Nice to put a name with a knife. No paperwork tying him directly to the Raiders.

56. Consignment ~ DM ~ 10/23 ~ USN Mark II. Blade marked US Navy, RH PAL 37. Full blade appears unsharpened, but has many spots of rust. This knife has been rehandled with stacked leather washers and red and grey spacers at each end. Handle has nicely beveled edges. Feels good in the hand. Guard and pommel are aluminum. Pommel is somewhat interesting in design and is pinned on. Comes with plastic USN MK II sheath.
57. Consignment ~ DM ~ Shop or Theater Made Fighting Knife. Blade is Bowie style 7” long. Made from ¼” stock at the hilt. Blade is thinner and well made. Guard and butt cap appear to be made of stainless steel or nickel. Guard is 2 ¾” and diamond shaped at both ends. Handle is made of black and white spacers with middle sections may be made from black fiber material. Butt cap is nicely made champagne cork shaped. Sheath is double stitched heavy but soft pliable leather and original to the knife. Really nice knife.
58. Consignment ~ DM ~ Western G46-6 Shark blue blade, full blade, nice handle but the guard is loose. Not a high grade knife. Rough overall.
59. NK ~ Consignment ~ USM-5 Bayonet made by MILPAR. This bayonet is in near mint condition. Interesting feature is that there are areas of the blade that took a plumb color (similar to some variations of SOG knives). Blade appears unsharpened and finish on all metal is at 99%. Proper scabbard is well used, but solid. $75
60. Consignment ~NK~ 8/28 ~ Vietnam Era (1973) Round tip bolo—unissued. In the original box and wrapper. It is not mine so I did not open it. I’m sure that it is mint. Canvas sheath.
61. Consignment ~NK~ 8.28 ~ 1918 Plumb Bolo with proper A-K-CO sheath. Blade retains 80% or better of the bluing, and has been carefully sharpened. Grips appear to me to be replacements.

This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon. (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.
The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut. The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.
Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
